A former chief of staff to a Florida congressman has pleaded guilty in a scheme to illegally request absentee ballots online, an incident that computer experts said was the first documented cyberattack on a U.S. election.

Jeffrey Garcia, who had worked for Rep. Joe Garcia, D-Fla., pleaded guilty Monday in a Miami-Dade County court to one felony and three misdemeanor charges. In a plea deal, he will serve 90 days in jail and 18 months on probation. The two men are not related.

County contractors and staffers spotted the flurry of requests and thwarted the attempt.

Democrats just testing the "cheating waters"...more cheating to come later.

90% of life is "showing up"
